, and it should likely be a death penalty case under federal law. i believe that the federal confidence in doing this at this time is extraordinary. >> cenk: all right, beth what are your thoughts here? any reason to call him an enemy combatant, are you in favor or opposed to it. >> well, it's not my opinion it's the law. he's not an enemy combatant. he's captureed on american soil. it has to be shown that he was in control or in concert with an foreign enemy. in this case it didn't meet that standard, so the law took care of itself. >> cenk: that's true. they called jose pedea made up how he was a dirty bomber and then later when they were forced to go to trial they said, yeah, well, turns out he wasn't a dirty bomber, but he was doing other things not related to us, but still terror, and he's in jail now but isn't that the problem, kevin, when you trust people to the government to just label the people enemy combatant correctly, that's not again the american system. >> in that case he was actually in a military prison and was actually transferred to a miami federal prison. you're right jay car
by tennessee law. and if you don't, well then you don't have to do business in tennessee. it's just that simple and fair. in terms of imposing a new tax, this bill does not create one new tax. first, there are no federal taxes in here, none. and second, we don't even have the power to impose a new state tax, a state sales tax, nor would we try. no new taxes. simply a question of compliance and collecting the taxes already owed in the 46 states that currently have sales and use taxes. i urge my colleagues to come forward tonight at 5:30, vote for cloture on the motion to proceed. let us engage in this important debate. let us not put this off another day, another week, another month. let's bring this to a conclusion in the senate with a good, wholesome debate on a bipartisan basis, germane, relevant, constructive amendments that address some of the issues are welcome. bring them forward and let's not burn up the hours of the day and the hours of the week in quorum calls but let's get down to the business of the senate we were sent to do. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding

. that got law enforcement zeroing on the two brothers. bill: mike, we're trying to piece this together as best we can but what can you tell us about the reports that the fbi is questioning him today from his hospital bed? >> reporter: all of that goes back to a "usa today" report citing anonymous sources. the sourcing is not as tight as i would like but certainly a significant development. we know he has been sedated. he has a injury to his neck or jaw, a bullet wound to his neck or jaw that prevented him from communicating. 9 report says he was roused back to consciousness and providing things in writing and providing substantive answers to questions. we know from the information he is providing that indicates there is not a larger network and not a second wave of bombings to be feared, bill. bill: mike, thank you. we'll be back with you when there are more headlines from boston. mike leading our coverage there martha. martha: we are hearing the police chatter when police first spotted dzhokhar tsarnaev hiding in that covered boat. massachusetts state police released the stunning infr
. it all goes back to "usa today" report citing anonymous law enforcement source but if the information hashings out it is certainly significant, the fact he is able to communicate with investigators by writing. he can't speak because as you mentioned there is a gunshot wound either to the neck or jaw or both but he is able to write according to this report and the answers providing to questions are described as substantive. what know from the information the answers he is providing indicates there is not a larger network. there is not a second wave planned or a wave people should be fearful of connected to him. again the information, the sourcing on the information just doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence, jenna. jenna: we'll take that interest consideration, mike as you've been on the ground there for the past several days. we see the flowers behind you and tell us where you are and when will the area around the blast site be reopened to the public? >> reporter: this is copley scare and you see another makeshift emmoral. so sadly these at that are common building up behind us. t
a lot of questions in my mind and, as i say, more 30 the point of law in the minds of law enforcement as well. those are the kinds of leads that still have to be pursued and run to ground. >> is there anything on the videotape that maybe the public hasn't seen about his reaction that was particularly telling that moved the investigation along? >> well, the videotape is not something i've seen. it's been described to me in my briefing, but it does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off, and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. so pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly, as it was described to me. >> governor, as a former constituent department official, do you have a view of whether he should be part of the criminal justice system, as someone who is tried in court, or should he be treated as a terrorist, as an enemy combatant? that debate is only beginning now here in washington. >> well, that's the attorney general's call, and i have to respect
background is in the law and, actually, he began his background in law at his family's kitchen table. his father, rex lee, was a law school dean, assistant u.s. attorney general and solicitor general for ronald reagan. senator lee is a graduate of brigham young university and byu law school, was a law clerk for judge dean benson of the u.s. district court of the district of utah and then judge sam alito's clerk when he was at the u.s. court of appeals for the 3rd circuit. he served as an attorney -- assistant u.s. attorney general in utah and general counsel to the governor of utah before turning to private practice. and then in 2010, that important election year, he decided to run united yorking out an -- knocking out an incumbent u.s. senator and a party-endorsed candidate to become the primary candidate and win the general election. senator lee is now on the judiciary committee, serves as ranking member of the antitrust competition policy and consumer rights subcommittee. he also sevens on the armed service -- serves on the armed services committee and the joint economic committee and

. that is the only legal way to proceed. i do not believe under the military commission law that she is eligible for that. it would be unconstitutional to do that. one of the great things in america we come together at times of trial. i very much regret the fact that there are those that want to precipitate debate whether he's enemy combatant or whether he is a terrorist, murder, et cetera. federal law, we have had 435 terrorist convictions. under federal law. we had 100-plus arrests. maybe half a dozen under the military commission. this is clear to me that the course that can be taken, the high value interrogation group. they are skilled and they know how to do this. the miranda right can be read at a later time. he has reportedly been shot through the throat, he is incubated and he can't talk now. therdo the investigation, to make a clear assessment and move from there. so i really regret all of this discussion. which is creating a conflict that need not be there. the administration is redty foreadyfor this. >> chris: let me bring in congressman king. despite the comments of feinstein do you
-off from the local community to law enforcement. so we have focused so much on specific ethnic groups since 9/11 in terms of potential threats. maybe we need to open the aperture a little bit. not because the communities pose a threat to the united states but because there are individuals we need to pay attention to. >> when you talk about other groups, not al qaeda but other overseas groups that you might want to investigate. other people in the new york times are saying there might have been other parts to this attack. there is a significant arsenal assembled by these guys. are you comfortable this is a two-person plot or that there may have been some other people we haven't yet seen who are advising or perhaps even funding part of this? >> i think there is no doubt that because of the seven or eight ieds that they've discovered since the capture of tsarnaev, they were planning additional attacks. the question is what were they and what would they be? >> my guess and this is a semieducated guest. we'll find other people who were tangentially involved. unwitting accomplices, providing logi
that we cannot achieve a compassionate society simply by passing new laws and appointing more staff to administer them. she was very aware that there are positions which are needed to make market economics and democratic and two shins function well -- institutions function well. the capacity to cooperate. these dispositions are incubated and given power by our relationships. in her words, the basic ties of the family are at the heart of our society and our the nursery of virtue. such morals -- moralnd spiritual capital isumulated over many generations but can be easily eroded. life is a struggle to make the right choices and to achieve liberation from dependence, whether material or psychological. this genuine independence is the essential precondition of living. beyond ourselves. the word margaret thatcher uses , interdependence. she referred to the christian doctrine that we are all members about one and another, expressed in the concept of the church on earth as the body of christ. from this, we learn our interdependence. as she said, the great truth, if we do not achieve happin
surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
under u.s. law. the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is live with us right now. i know you've been reviewing these charges. what's the latest on what you've uncovered? >> it is a fairly interesting sequence of things that the government cites here as evidence. first of all they say that there was a surveillance tape that shows what apparently is the second suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, the man in the hospital, placing the bomb at the second bombing. this is unrelated picture to what i'm talking about now. but this is the person we're talking about. but the surveillance tape was taken at the scene of the second bombing. you may recall that there was a restaurant there called the foreign restaurant. they say a surveillance camera there shows him walking up to the restaurant with his backpack on. that he takes a cell phone off, seems to be using it for a while, then seems to be
an explosion which is apparently a flash bang used to disorient the suspect. >>> and u.s. law enforcement officials now say that russian intelligence officials alerted the fbi in 2011 that tamerlan was a physical lower of radical islam. >> the ball was dropped in one of two ways the fbi missed a lot of things is one potential answer or our laws do not allow the fbi to follow us in a sound solid way. >> reporter: the fbi says in the summer of 2011 it interviewed tamerlan and his relatives and did not find any foreign terrorist activity. >>> a statement was released. it reads in part that the caucasian mudin is not related to attacks on the u.s., they are in the war for russia it says. >>> and the suspect's father says that fbi agents called him to say that he was under suspicion. his mother says that tamerlan said if you need me you will find me. hours later he was killed following a shoot out with police. and late tonight the fbi disputeed the mother's claim saying the last contact they had with tamerlan was in 2011. >>> now as the legal process begins to unfold, the 19-year- old suspect
law of war or whether he should be turned over to the civilian criminal justice system immediately. should the ballston bomber be designated as an enemy combatants? give us a call. -- the boston bomber. a very good monday morning to you. we want to take you to the statement that was released over the weekend by three senators and one republican congressman. senator john mccain, senator instagram, senator kelly ayotte, and congressman king. they say the man should be treated as an enemy combatants. so we will take you through that debate that took place on a lot of the sunday shows today and which is on the front page of several newspapers today. here is the front page of the washington times. they're right that this issue is more politically contentious. ma auehe sunday mohows that the white house could lose the honorable intelligence if it mishandles the suspect poses questioning. the debate over the suspect plutayed o on the sunday morning shows. here's another story in the washington post about the status of the case. we will start with lindsey graham, the republican senator fro

on this investigation, we are joined by brandi hitt in boston. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. law enforcement officials tell abc news that the terror suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is awake being questioned by authorities about possible accomplices. with the throat injury, though he is having to write down these responses, one week after the terror attack. law enforcement sources tell abc news terror suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev is awake in a boston hospital. and being questioned about possible accomplices and unexploded bombs. the 19-year-old is responding in writing, due to a serious throat injury. authorities say may have ctlf. >> they had other bombs. they had other explosives. they were probably planning to do something else. >> reporter: this is the first moment an elite federal interrogation team has spoken to tsarnaev since friday's dramatic end to the manhunt. new video shows him hiding in a boat as stun grenades exploded leading to capture. tsarnaev's older brother, tamerlan was killed in a police shootout and investigators are looking into his trip to russia which has become a hotbed of i
something and peacefully object to it, but also if the law itself is unjust. and so in this case, i believe that the laws around trespassing are unjust. and so accepting a jail sentence seems to me, for me the way i can best bear witness to that. >> what will your children do while you're in -- >> well, i have a great marriage. and so as my husband says, "there's a reason, you know, that kids have two parents." >> yeah. >> and so as i've told my children in the days leading up to this that, "if it is ever the case that i can be a better parent to you in jail rather than out of jail, i'm ready to that parent." >> you were arrested, as you say, for trespassing. you broke the law. you knew you were breaking the law. what did you hope uld happen? >> well, the 12 of us blocked a driveway that a company called inergy is using to prepare abandoned salt caverns that are underneath the west bank of seneca lake. we've been salt mining in the finger lakes area of upstate new york since the 1900s -- 1800s, actually. it goes back a long way. and so there are these abandoned underground chambers that are
than 100 cameras in law enforcement communities. that is all around the world, not just here in the u.s. >>gretchen: thanks for that update. so much more information coming out in the last 48 hours after the killing and then the capture of the suspects. sources now are saying that they acted alone, but the big question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover o
through our civilian system of justice. under u.s. law the united states citizens can not be tried in military commissions. and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> tsarnaev now lies under armed guard unable to speak due to what may be a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his neck. authorities continue to question him, relying on written answers at this point. but his answers may be somewhat less important in his prosecution given the volume of evidence in the federal complaint, including description of video after the first explosion. "bomber two virtually alone among the individuals in front of the restaurant appears calm. he glances to the east and then calmly, but rapidly, begins moving to the west. away from the direction of the finish line. he walks away without his knapsack. having left it on the ground where he'd been standing. approximately ten seconds later, an explosion occurs." the complaint also contains details from the carjacking victim who says one of the suspects said t
theory? >> well, i think it's out there. i think it's something of a society and certainly the law enforcement and the intelligence community, they clearly know that this is not a hoax. this is not something that somebody is coming up and developing and so forth. those organizations and the type of organizations that are really fertilizing terrorist activities, it's real. and it's real for the united states. i think we've gotten a piece of that here in the last few weeks here, based on the activities that we've taken place there. if you talk to many of the law enforcement people and so forth, they will look back and say, "this had to be an operation by these two young men that was planned and it was worked over years, not over just a few weeks or so, over months and over years that they have been there". >> chief shaffer, a lot of people are saying this, there are 100 agents or more looking for this cell. these two guys couldn't have done it. they are amateurs, what is your take on this? are we going to wake up and find out there was a much bicker conspiracy. >> if you look at what
was executed within three months. there are very strong laws for the fact of whether you are an american citizen or not, you joined a war with the united states, it changes. he has the clerk war against us. how close of a connection was this to al qaeda? i think those are tough questions. i hope the administration approaches this kind of with a legal mind, not a political rights. i would like to push everything in the direction of enemy combatant, if we can get there. no time for on it. considering the fact that the obama administration has done away with all kinds of intense questioning, you will need more time. this guy will be treated pretty nicely. you will need time to get the information and to test the reliability of the information. the idea of worrying about prosecuting him, would not worry about that at all. stuart: he will be found guilty. >> you can prosecute him and at least three places. stuart: supposedly do the exact opposite. can it deliver negotiate, couldn't he say, look, we will not execute you, if you tell us. >> it is a risk. we tend to mess things up, rather than a
and this is "way too early," the show that tips our cap to law enforcement and we mark one week since the marathon bombings. monday, april 22nd. >>> the boston bombings impact on the immigration debate as lawmakers move forward with legislation. could the fact that the suspects are foreigners change the focus of the discussion and the impact of the sequester? planning to fly sometime soony why the faa says today is the first day travelers will really feel the effects. >>> we'll get to the latest on the boston investigation in a moment. >>> first developing news overnight in washington state. at least five people were killed by gunfire at an apartment building in a suburb south of seattle. among the dead a suspect who was shot by police officers on the scene. another two bodies found in the parking lot and two more bodies were found inside the building. we'll bring you the updates on this latest gun tragedy as we get them. >>> bells will ring at 2:50 to mark one week since the deadly marathon bombings struck and according to investigators the lone surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, is responding
about the zoning laws in texas? >> stephanie: lack of government regulation! they had like a zillion times more -- than you're allowed to have and how many feet from a school! >> a school and a nursing home! that shouldn't happen! >> stephanie: i can't remember the number. i'll get to it. hello! that's rand paul's libertarian pair dice. fertilizer plant with however many tons you want. >> near an active fault zone. >> stephanie: hmm? anyway so obviously lots of breaking news left and right. you were saying the latest i guess is that the -- dzhokhar. i feel like i'm in the cone head sketch. dzhokhar. he is responding to written questions. he's not talking yet. >> he has a wound in their neck. they're not sure if it was self-inflicted. a tube down his neck but he can write. so he is answering questions. >> stephanie: so no word about what we're finding out or not so far. but anyway, so far from dzhokhar. sorry. i'm a little punchy from last week. >> that was a help of a news newsweek. >> like the onion said, cheese us this week. >> stephanie: really? what else now. speaking of what els
jersey governor chris christie wants to make some of the toughest state gun laws in the country even tougher. >>> good morning from fenway park! it's monday, april 22nd, 2013! now here's "the daily rundown" with chuck todd! boston strong! woo! >> what a great way to begin what hopefully is a better week for everybody thanks to the baby giraffes, an improv group from boston. those good morning videos, you could be tomorrow's winner. let's get to my first reads of the morning. let's run through everything we've learned since friday night's arrest. federal prosecutors may file terrorism charges today against dzhokhar tsarnaev, the 19-year-old man accused of the boston marathon bombings. tsarnaev is under guard in serious but stable condition at a boston hospital with a gunshot wound to the neck. some investigators believe that wound may be the result of a suicide attempt before his arrest. he's now being questioned, but only for brief periods because of his medical condition and is responding mostly in writing because of the injury. investigators have been trying to piece together the e
don't want to turn over intelligence gathering over to a criminal attorney. under the law, there is no right to legal counsel when you are egg being questioned for national security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that and they have a bad track record. >> and this is not the course the administration will take. they will take reading him his rights after national security exception has run out and prosecuting him in a federal court as well. >> molly: thank you. >> megyn: more breaking news. news reporting that federal charges have now been filed against the surviving suspect. though they are reportedly being filed under seal. that means we don't get to see them. they will have to let it's know what the charges are but perhaps not all the supporting information. in a case of this magnitude there is no way they are going to keep the charges private and not public. in other words, what exactly has he been charged with? a terrorist act, using weapons of mass destruction? these were all on the potential list of charges. so we'll try to get more on what t
, to the legal process ahead of us. with me former united states attorney general the nation's chief law enforcement officer michael mukasey who is chief judge in the southern district of new york and presided over the blind sheik trial and the jose padilla case. we heard that there will be no charges filed against the younger brother dhokhar. how long can the justice department wait to file charges? >> they can wait really as long as they like. the fact is that he -- the only down side for them is the possibility that any statement that he makes might not be able to be used at trial. but they have got so much evidence including his own confession to the person whose car he carjacked that the likelihood that they need any statement from him as evidence in the trial is remote. >> judge jeanine: and you know, judge, a lot of people have been talking about miranda and the public safety exception. i don't want to spend a lot of time on that. when the police announced that the public threat was over, once dhokhar was taken into custody, then, you know, doesn't that suggest that the public saf
combatant or enemy belligerent for purpose of evidence gathering. >> under the law of war there's no right to legal counsel when you're being questioned for national security purposes. so i hope the obama administration will allow that exception and they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try tsarnaev in federal court and no other options were considered. >> this is matter decide ode by the attend of yates and the attorney general. the whole national security team supports this decision. >> to bring it down for you, the confusion comes over the venue. there is no way under the military commissions act to try an american citizen at the military courts in guantanamo bay, but if a sed threshold of evidence was met, if there was evidence that the brothers were directed by a foreign terrorist organization that would call for enemy combatant status. >> we have been talking about the trip to russian that the older suspect took. it's my understanding you learn more about the trip. >> fox news was told that russia's equivalent othe fbi isn't a letter to
process ahead of us. with a former united states attorney general, the nation's chief law enforcement officer, michael mukasey, who was chief judge in the southern district of new york, presided over the blind sheik trial as well as the jose padilla case. good evening, judge. >> good evening, judge. >> good to have you back, judge. >> today we heard there will be no charges filed against the younger brother dzhokhar. how long can the justice department wait to file charges? >> they can wait really as long as they'd like. the fact is that he -- the only down side for them is the possibility that any statement that he makes might not be able to be used at trial. they've got so much evidence, including his own confession to the person whose car he carjacked, that the likely they need any statement from him as evidence in the trial is remote. >> right. you know, judge, a lot of people h ve been talking about miranda, the public safety exception. i don't want to spend a lot of time on that. but, you know, when the police announced that the public threat was over, once dzhokhar was taken in
on boston bombing coming up this hour. when we return we're going to get into the law of this case. dzhokhar tsarnaev was formally charged today. he'll be prosecuted through the criminal justice system despite republicans who say he should be treated as an enemy combatant. >>> later, the russian connection. we have new details about the older brother, tamerlan, and his six-month trip overseas to russia, that area, as he became increasingly more devout in his religion and radicalism. >>> here in washington, the marathon bombings have already started to change the debate on things like -- you knew this was coming -- immigration. >>> finally, life started to return to normal this weekend in boston. i was up there as the slow healing begins. this is "hardball." as we say up there, "hardball." the place for politics. >>> as clint van zandt just mentioned here, police in canada say they foiled a terror plot up there. they arrested two men that were plotting to derail an amtrak passenger train on the canadian side of our border. the suspects have been under surveillance for a year and the canadian
the decision and, of course, i'm not second-guessing anybody. i did talk to a law enforcement officer over the weekend who, first of all, said, you know, it would have been much better for us all if this had been plotted out of a cave in afghanistan instead of, you know, an apartment in cambridge. >> one among us. >> yeah, one among us. but also he was saying not so sure about them shutting down the entire city and the message that that sends. you talk about copycats. the copycat said if i do something particularly heinous, i can hold an entire city hostage. >> one of the purposes of terrorists is to disrupt and forcing a city shut down and the rest, she used that end in addition to killing and injurying that you do. one of the reasons -- i don't want to second-guess the tactical decision to lock down boston. but i don't think this is something that if you will a scaleable or sustainable. >> no, we can't do this. >> imagine these guys hadn't been captured and all that. >> after what happened to the boston marathon in an internationally visible way. we were covering this all morning long. i
don't have to pay, and diplomatic protections for the egregious violations of law. you can't take it to criminal court, but to the table to negotiate with those who tell you we're the only people, we, the jewish people, with rights in this land. these cold, hard realities of how u.s. policy grievancely harms palestinians are screened from the u.s. public. we bombarded, especially on television, instead, with dishonest rhetoric what is described as progress in a so-called peace process which extensively consistented of negotiations between near equals under the impartial gays of an honest american broker, all supposedly intended to create an independent palestinian state. i'm arguing that this is not what is actually happening. this is not what has happened for 35 years. what has happened is the continuation and the intensification and the reenforcement of the dispersal of the organization and colonization of the pal stippian people and their homeland. the united states, in fact, has never really operated as an honest broker between the palestinians and israel. i never talked to an
for these kinds of maller level ied type attacks, the government will have to refocus. i would add that local law enforcement and responders are very focused on this kind of thing, though. we've got systems in a lot of major cities where the security cameras used for traffic, for example, can also be used to protect them. >> while they're giving us speeding tickets -- >> right. >> neil: scott, thank you very much. 19-year-old dzhokar tsarnaev has reportedly addressed some questions from authorities who have visited him at hit -- his hospital room in boston. we don't know for sure or how he conveyed it, but we do know the government does not think they were part of a grander conspiracy. but how shoe can they be and what if anything has suspect number two already revealed that makes them so sure? let's ask former fbi profiler mary ellen o'toole. what do you think? what could he be signaling if he signals anything that could make at least the local authorities suspect it's just the two brothers? >> well, during the interview, as much as he is providing information, he could be explaining that it was
that sort of final fall on to the ground and that's where law enforcement sources basically handcuffed him and put him in the ambulance that took him to the hospital. so he is communicating with them, he is allowed to nod. he is just allowed to nod to investigators when they're asking him questions. they're waiting for him to increasingly become more aware and get out of that sedation so that they can talk to him at greater lengths, anderson. >> and, don lemon, you've got information about who's questioning the suspect. >> yeah, i certainly do. to add to what debra said who's questioning the suspect, it's a group called the high value detainee interrogation group. and this group was established seven or eight years ago it was after the capture of saddam hussein and the interrogation of saddam hussein. and what homeland security realized then is they needed one specific group with global knowledge of terrorism, international knowledge of terrorism, to go in to question these high-value detainees rather than a local person who has knowledge of the local area, local municipalities but didn't
to gain access to the lawful ways that have been tried and true under our constitution for years and years. i just on see this notion of monitoring people. gerri: the old-fashioned way. go do it the old-fashioned way, get a case, bring your case, and go from there. >> exactly. exactly. exactly. i suppose you could also make the case that you ought not to be accessing some of these social media accounts during business hours on business provided equipment and the company could have rules about that. i would not object to that, but the notion of going into your personal account and watching what you do outside of work and business hours is just, just terribly invasive. gerri: well, we should mention that a new bill that the house is putting forward, there was an ad on banning employers from seeing facebook pass word spirit that was killed. something that would have taken care of this nationally went down. want to talk to about a totally separate issue as long as you are here in the privacy expert. everytime i get to a store these days they're asking for my zip code. and i have to sink their
's marathon bomb, now responding to investigator's questions. law enforcement trying to piece together what was behind the attacks. scott cohn has the latest on the investigation. good morning, scott. >> good morning, andrew. we expect there could be criminal charges against dzhokhar tsarnaev today. chillingly after the bombing a week with ago today, he and his brother tamerlan appeared to resume their normal lives. friends say he was at dartmouth, work withing out at the gym, talking about the bombing. and they are still in disbelief. >> it's hard top comprehend someone could go doing normal college kid stuff to bombing a marathon. >> and that about the older brother, tamerlan, 26 years old? he apparently talked to his parents in russia after the bombing and said everything was okay. he he went back to russia last year and was not interviewed afterwards. that has some on capitol hill wondering how did the intelligent agencies miss this? >> the fact that we could not track him as to be fixed. it's people like this that you don't want to let out of your site. this was a mistake. i don't know
. law enforcement officials tell abc news 19-year-old suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is awake. he's unable to speak because of a neck injury authorities believe may be self-inflicted. tsarnaev is answering some questions in writing. we're told authorities asked about potential accomplices and any unexploded bombs. >> i am not convinced they were planning more attacks. that's hearsay. i haven't got information about that. but, you know, we have to be vigilant. >> reporter: since police captured him after a dramatic d to friday's mat, the brder investigfocuses on his older brother. 26-year-old tamerlan died in a shootout with police. last year, he traveled overseas to russia and chechnya and began linking to jihadist videos online. some wonder why he fell off the fbi's radar after they questioned him about possible terror ties two years ago. >> somehow, he got off the radar screen and traveled overseas to one of the most dangerous parts of the world. >> reporter: the bombings left three dead and dozens injured. many are still in the hospital. yesterday, boston remembered the victims and pray

phone records, websites, and associates, the fbi found no ties to terrorists. by law, monitoring had to stop barring new negative information. the fbi was no longer watching. after tamerlan returned from a six-month trip to russia, a dark side began emerged. he was charged in cambridge with beating a former girlfriend. started uploading videos. authorities never saw this coming. [ explosion ] some investigators believed tamerlan was the leader and convinced his younger brother to embrace jihad. george? >> let's get more from abc legal analyst dan abrams. and former special agent for the fbi brad garrett. we now know that dzhokhar is answering some questions in writing. the fbi wants to know, is anybody else involved? >> right. the real trick with that, george, is figuring out where his mind is. what is his motivation? why does he want to talk to us? is he being truthful or not? getting him over that hump and saying, okay, it's okay to talk to us, it's really your only avenue to a better situation maybe. th cld take a lo period of time. >> and dan, how much longer can this questioning
for law enforcement and for politicians to paint this as black and white. we like to see things in terms of good and evil. evil-doers, out doing evil. and certainly the act itself is an act of evil. it's horrible what happened. but then you put that next to the description of dzhokhar by his friends and the one that emerges from his twitter feet. when you hear the president say we're confronting the face of evil and you hear his friends say, he's the nicest guy ever. he arrived, he would pick you up. >> and adopted kittens. twitter photos of kittens. that doesn't excuse anything, in terms of complicating the picture here. >> it does lend credibility to the idea that his older brother was the one that might have influenced this. it's the perfect age, what, 26 and 19, for the 19-year-old to look up to the 26-year-old. and i think it's revealing, too, that he kind sounds like he drove over his brother. >> yes, well, in the escape. >> i'd like to see, if that's true, it would be interesting to see if they charge him with that. you know -- >> involuntary manslaughter. >> that would be one of
secretary jay carney. >> this is the result of sequester that was never meant to be law. it was never meant to be law for reasons like this. congress can act. it could have acted in the past. it could have brought down the sequester and avoided it entirely. congress could act now to do that. republicans in congress could decide that the victory party is over and it's time to get serious about the economy. >> reporter: now, it was never meant to be, but it is a fact of life for travelers just as the summer traveling season begins to heat up. bill? >> hampton, thank you very much. so what impact will an air traffic control slowdown have on the airline business and on their stocks? joining us, seth caplan, managing partner at airline weekly. an online airline industry newsletter. and our own phil lebeau joining us as well. seth, obviously the sequester was meant to be a worst case scenario. nobody wanted to see it happen, but it has. is this the worst case scenario for the airline business right now in your view? >> not the worst case scenario, but it's certainly very frustrating. for the all
through our civilian system of justice, under us law. u.s. citizen can not be trialed, tried rather in military commissions. and it's important to remember that since 9-11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> brown: tsarnaev was also likely to face state charges in the shooting death of a police officer at m.i.t. it all followed his dramatic capture friday evening, when he was found hiding and wounded in a boat behind a home in the boston suburb of watertown. his older brother tamarlen died hours earlier in a shoot-out with police that triggered the all-day manhunt and shut down the city. yesterday, on cbs, massachusetts governor deval patrick stood by the unprecedented measures. >> i think people understood that we were making decisions in the face of a rapidly developing investigation and that we were making them in the best interests of people's public safety, or the public's safety. i think there won't be political backlash and frankly i'm not thinking about that anyhow. >> brown: in boston today, it was a time of remembranc
bureaucracy. the way they arranged the law, they have few other options. >> the faa unlike other agencies is personnel heavy. in the end you can not avoid, when 70% of your operating budget is personnel you can not avoid when the cuts are deep as they are in the sequester the kind of actions that are taken, these furloughs. that is the unfortunate fact of arbitrary across-the-board cuts like this. >> but the airline folks, the folks who represent the airlines, say basically when you talk about a $16 billion annual budget at the faa you can find other ways to cut. therefore they have filed a suit. they're calling for a 30-day stay on all of this to find better ways instead of randomly cutting air traffic controllers. the way this works some 15,000 air traffic controllers nationwide, everyone has to take one day off every couple weeks. back to you. david: rich edson, in d.c. rich, thanks very much. liz: betting on the great outdoors? mgm resorts international where the company wants you to stay indoors in the casino, certainly is. the chairman and ceo is telling us why they're hoping a bit
and a graduate of harvard law. good to see you, congressman. good morning. >> good to see you. >> the next step of this i guess the more serious step has come from four senators and one congressman so far who are calling for dzhokhar tsarnaev to be called as an enemy combatant. let me play what lindsay graham said about that. >> he should be designated as an enemy combatant and question him for intelligence gathering purposes and find out about terrorist organizations that may exist that he has knowledge of. >> congressman, you releaseded a statement disagreeing with that. why? >> i don't think there's a constitutional legal basis to treat him as an enemy combatanc. i don't see how we can do this constitutionally. i understand that senator graham would like to prolong the interview and we all want to get as much information as we can but there are limits to what we can do and those limits apply in a situation of an american arrested for committing a heinous act like this on american soil so i don't think there's a constitutional legal basis. i also agree with dan collins. there's a lot we can d
